034 – Presidential Diet, Nutrition to Combat Cancer, Lack of Sleep in U.S. Children

In this week’s episode, we look at three news headlines in the nutrition, health, and wellness arena from the past week.  First up we take a look at the current presidential “diet” and some of the challenges with the Commander In Chief’s food choices and consumption.  Next we check out some survey research on the ability to reduce the risk of cancer through diet and nutrition, and the link between food beliefs and diet choices.  Finally, a new research study examines the chronic lack of sleep among American children - as early school start times, screen related distractions, and other external pressures impact nightly sleep durations.
